FacebookTwitterMike. 27-year-old Wisconsin born-and-raised. Probably not wearing pants. I love movies, rock music, Brett Favre and my Wisconsin sports teams (Packers, Badgers, Brewers). You'll see a lot of each on here. Some of my favorite bands include: Halestorm, Skillet, Breaking Benjamin, Trapt, Chevelle, Paramore, Sevendust, Disturbed, Flyleaf and E.S. Posthumus.

Based off the Packers’ beat writers’ Tweets, rookie WR Jared Abbrederis (and former Badger) may have suffered a torn ACL, based off coach Mike McCarthy’s press conference following today’s practice.@16 hours ago
Excited for a great Friday evening. I’m about to pick up Karissa from work in Ames and we’re going to an early dinner and then Guardians of the Galaxy, and then drinking the night away at the Ames bars :)@11 hours ago with 1 note

My new job will be a M-F, 8-4:30 (ct) schedule, which is sooo much better than sports writing has been the last 7 years. I’ll have weekends free for the first time since I began working full-time after college. It’ll make planning things so much easier.
Also, my salary will be 30% higher than it was in Fond du Lac. Granted, my Fond du Lac salary was poor as shit, so I still won’t be well off by any means, but at least I think I won’t feel cripplingly poor as I used to. Overall, I’ve increased my salary by 61% from what it was 20 months ago at my first full-time job. Not bad.
Starting Monday, I’ll be an associate editor for Advantage Business Media in southern Madison, Wisconsin. It’s a company of about on the staff, of which there are about 20 total editors. ABM represents 25 different brands between manufacturing, science, design and communications through print and online publications. I’ll essentially be the beat writer for one of those brands, so I’ll write daily newsletters and content for its monthly magazine. I’ll be writing about the brands’ new products, performance updates, new developments, breaking news, etc.
It sounds like I’ll also get to travel 5-6 times a year to visit with the higher-ups of the companies I’m writing about to good face-to-face relationship, although I don’t know yet where those locations would be.
I’ll probably be on a laptop for a good portion of most workdays, but I don’t know if I’ll be able to Tumblr at work or not. It not, I’ll probably be posting a lot less, since Karissa and I will likely have the same work hours and will be doing stuff after work. What I’m thinking will happen is my blog will turn more strictly into personal posts since I wouldn’t be checking the dash nearly as often, if at all. Which would be sad since I love seeing what you guys post, but I can at least bookmark my favorite blogs and just check on them.
Anyways, I’m very psyched and a little nervous to start the new job. I’ll have a much better idea of my Tumblr availability after the first week.@16 hours ago with 2 notes
